A rogue tomato

Some time ago, a tomato plant started growing up out of the bottom of my compost pile.  I never planted it; it must have started from seeds that I put in the compost.  It’s been blooming for a couple of weeks.  The flowers are small and delicate, with very thin yellow petals.

And now, the crazy thing is growing a couple of tomatoes!  They’re still green.  They look like the grape tomatoes that I got from the farm last spring.  If so, they may turn out to be edible! 

This makes me feel better about planting seeds outside from the get-go, rather than trying to start seedlings inside.  This particular seed has really gone to town, with very little help from me!

Stay tuned…
